Wow, what a trip!
I recently took a week long vacation to Seattle and Vancouver and fell in love. Both cities are incredible, though I’d argue for Seattle if I had to pick my next home. Walkable cities, great scenery, lots of stuff to do if you’re a city person or an outdoorsy type, and fantastic food all around. Yeah, I think I enjoyed myself.
On top of snagging some fantastic images, I also gathered some fun tales and adventures.
Olympic National Park was my favorite part of the trip. The beaches were amazing and my favorite images came from La Push at sunset. My buddy and I set up on a log and waited for the sun to go down on a pre-determined spot. Just as we were about to shoot, a family came down and starting playing on the tree we were using for the foreground in our image.
After silently cursing them for a moment for getting in the way, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity. What I got was a cute little story that I think is better than the sunset image on its own.
This trip was a huge stress reliever and allowed me some time to review some much needed business strategy. Now that my batteries are recharged, I’ll be hitting the marketing trail and working on landing some wedding gigs! It’s been way to slow this year for my liking. Time to make some changes. Muahahaha
